North Dakota State may yet add another running back to its recruiting class. Hutchinson Junior College’s Deveon Dinwiddie, a source of speculation over the past week or so, is making a campus visit to NDSU this weekend. Contrary to a newspaper report in Kansas, he said he has not signed.
He is the brother of Bison freshman linebacker DeShawn Dinwiddie, which he calls “a close relationship and is a real strong tie.”
“We’ve always played on winning programs,” Deveon said. “With my brother there, we can push each other that much harder. We always have. It would be a great thing if I do get an offer.”
He said he has three years of eligibility remaining, again which has been a source of confusion. He suffered a knee injury and redshirted his freshman year at Hutchinson in 2010. He had 860 yards and 12 touchdowns this season and started for a 9-3 Hutchinson team. He said he was also looking at Arkansas, Nevada, Alabama-Birmingham and San Diego State, but did not get an offer.
Dinwiddie signed at Kansas State in high school, but he said “it didn’t work out.”
